The world needs empathy: Swara Bhaskar

Mumbai: Actress Swara Bhaskar has said that it was sad to see the world ignoring the emotion of empathy.

“The one thing that the world needs right now is empathy. It’s sad that we’re ignoring this emotion,” Swara said in a statement.

With “TED Talks India Nayi Soch” — coming for the first time in Hindi on Star Plus, superstar Shah Rukh Khan (host of the show) is urging people to spread the ideas and not to kill them.

On this note, the actress, who has essayed some strongly opinionated roles in films like “Nil Battey Sannata”, “Anaarkali of Aarah” and “Listen… Amaya”, said: “I wish that people don’t scared to ask questions. It’s not wrong to be curious. I think questioning is the way to progress.”

She also sent her best wishes to Shah Rukh for his new venture and said that she could not wait for the show as it will cater to “mass audience in the best possible way”.

The show will go on air on Sunday.
